West Vancouver has been shaped by a geography of rugged peaks dropping to serene waterfront. Both the community and the lifestyle are informed by sandy beaches, pebbled coves and forested cliffs that watch over a stunning seascape. Its villages have distinct character, from the big brands of Park Royal, to the sidewalk cafés and independent boutiques of Ambleside, to the restaurants and artisanal grocers of Dundarave. Seaside parks dot its coastline, connected by a Seawalk where locals jog and walk their dogs. Residents are enthusiastic skiers, sailors, golfers, hikers and cyclists. They enjoy nothing more than a day in the mountains or a weekend on the water followed by great meals shared with good friends, surrounded by spectacular views.
